The YDI USB Antenna is a flat panel antenna with a built-in 802.11b wireless USB adapter. It offers wireless connectivity to any Wi-Fi compatible Access Point and is ideal for use at Wireless Internet client sites. The antenna and the radio are both sealed together in a lightweight weatherproof enclosure.
The key feature of the Emerald USB Antenna is the simplicity of installation. No need to open up a clients PC or even mess with fragile RF adapter cables or bulky coax cables. The kit comes with a 25-foot outdoor rated USB cable. Active USB extension cables can extend this length up to 80 feet! Just install the USB antenna outdoors where it has line of site to the WIPOP (Wireless Internet Point of Presence) and plug the USB cable into the client's PC. Since the radio is inside the antenna, there are no coax cable losses which would be encountered with the typical indoor radio installation.
This provides for the maximum possible ranges without the use of an amplifier! Additionally, since there is no external antenna or RF cables, FCC mandated professional installation is not required.
The Client Management software displays signal strength information make antenna aiming a breeze. If you are associated with an ORiNOCO Access Point, the software will also show you your signal strength and Signal to Noise Radio (SNR) as seen on the Access Point. This is an invaluable tool letting you know how solid your signal is into the base Access Point.
